A Little About Me

I’m a thirtysomething freelance writer and blogger with aspirations of becoming a journalist. I adore travel, languages, deep conversations, black coffee, and red wine. Outside of writing, I love to draw, paint, play music, and care for my plant babies. I live in Colorado with my wonderful partner.
